What is a forensic truth at your site? What is a social truth that comes up? What is a personal truth?
David McKenzie
35:14
At Ford’s Theatre: Forensic truth: John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln here on April 14, 1865.
Kara McLaughlin
36:14
Caroline Emmerton founded the House of the Seven Gables in 1910 as a museum and settlement house to help immigrants in the community.
Gegê Leme Joseph
36:28
Forensic truth: Valongo Wharf – Rio de Janeiro – archaeological excavations unearthed a port of arrival of slaves in the city that worked up to 1830s
David McKenzie
36:33
At Ford’s: Personal: Some viewed as a tragedy. Others viewed it as an overthrow of a tyrant. It was a sensational true crime. It was an act of political violence.
Kara McLaughlin
36:50
A participant in the mid 1900s of Gables programmings took issue with the idea that The Gables served immigrants. She did not see herself as an immigrant.
Marty Dewees
37:08
Lincoln’s assassination created social/political chaos
Katy Foster
37:31
Manzanar National Historic Site: Forensic is that over 110000 people were sent to incarceration camps. Personal: Japanese American citizens thought it was patriotic to join the military during WWII. Social: the causes included racial prejudice and lack of political leadership. Reconcilatory: Annual Pilgrimage.
David McKenzie
38:43
At Ford’s: Social: Ford’s as a stop on a tourist trip. Lincoln has become an icon, a mythic figure.
matthew murphy
39:14
Forensic-The prison opened in 1829 and functioned for 142 years. Personal- Oral histories remember the prison in the 1960's as having a relaxed environment compared to other institutions. Some remember it being a terrible prison with horrible living conditions. Social- Prisons keep us safe from criminals or mass incarceration is a civil rights issue.

39:48
at NMAI: Forensic: Boarding schools were established by the US govt for Native children to attend, where the children would be punished for speaking their native languages and practicing their religions Personal: my grandma was sent to boarding school and lost the language, she told me stories of being abused for speaking Navajo Social: boarding schools were wrong, so many Native activist (that were forced in boarding schools) begin grassroots movements and pass laws such as ICWA to ensure children stay in their communities Reconciliatory: Canadian government and Hawaii hold truth and reconcilatory hearings regarding the abuse in boarding schools and often times settle with payments to survivors
gem shandiin labarta
40:19
you got my name right!
David McKenzie
41:48
At Ford’s: Reconciliatory: Ford’s Theatre as a memorial and also reclaimed as a theatrical space, to honor Lincoln. But concern of losing impact of assassination. How to balance these.
matthew murphy
41:57
Reconciliation- Americans should divest in prison policy and dramatically decarcerate or that we've become soft on crime and should turn back to more severe forms of retribution for people who break the law.
matthew murphy
43:39
Do you have the title of the Josey publication?
matthew murphy
44:06

Very interested in the community building phase.
matthew murphy
01:01:24
Something we struggle with at ESP. Some of our phase one questions draw out jokes and morbid comments from visitors.
Linda Norris
01:05:06
A reminder: we would love questions you have about this work to pose in the bi-monthly Sites Scene newsletter, in addition to reaching out to connect with us to connect with specific sites. Plus, don’t forget to share your news with us. (sorry for the commercial Braden!)
A Tucker
01:08:47
do you feel like anyone is using social media effectively to engage in dialogue?
Stephanie Freese
01:09:44
Our site discuss political aspects of history (suffrage) so a challenge is having dialogue without visitors without the conversation breaking down into their critique of current political climate. As a bi-partisan federal entity, that is a challenging converstion for us to navigate.
Tracy Huling
01:11:51
Question: Advice for handling trauma triggered by dialogue
Tracy Huling

gem shandiin labarta

Cassandra Curtis
01:19:20
How does your family's relationship to immigration to affect your values as a Canadian?
Shona MacKay
01:19:35
What does a shared future look like to you?
Gegê Leme Joseph
01:19:47
Valongo Wharf: Imagining the feelings and fears trafficked / enslaved Africans must have felt when disembarking in Rio after their journey across the Atlantic, what feelings cross your mind?
Tracy Huling
01:19:51
Where were you the morning of the riot? how did you first hear or know it was happening?
David McKenzie
01:21:05
We think some of the answers are only going to panelists—could you paste some of the ones you mentioned? :)
International Coalition of Sites of Conscience
01:21:27
During Environmental and Climate Justice Dialogues at the LCC: What are some family practices that you have observed are friendly to the environment?

International Coalition of Sites of Conscience
01:21:48
How does your family's relationship to immigration to affect your values as a Canadian?
International Coalition of Sites of Conscience
01:21:58
How should historical trauma such as lynching be memorialized?
International Coalition of Sites of Conscience
01:23:04
Rosa responded to Tracy Huling’s question regarding how do you handle trauma triggered by dialogue. She wrote: “The way the LCC has navigated people sharing traumatic experiences during immigration dialogues is by 1. Acknowledging and thanking the person for being vulnerable and open 2. Allowing the person to take their time, keep sharing or stop 3. Providing outside resources if needed (or tissue if they cried, or a consensual hug)4. By being reciprocal and sharing a personal and related experience
Tracy Huling
01:23:47
Yes, Rosa, thank you!
